    They've always been there and Saudis aren't fighting them.

    They're fighting the Houthis.

    ISIS does not have a major presence in Yemen.

    AQIA is fighting everyone. If anything, the Sauds and AQ leave each other alone.

    When the U.S. pulled from Iraq there was no real exit strategy

    . there was huge stock piles of weapons and cash left behind.

    Trucks sold in the u.s. found there way on the battlefield.

    One plumber said he sold his truck and then saw it in Iraq on t.v.
    With his name still on the side

    to massacre muslims in yemen and help the people who follow the same essential ideology of the taliban. The taliban would be nothing without Wahabist/Salafist thought and Saudi and Pakistani money and influence. Lets face it, the Saudis are the mellowed out rich version of the Taliban.

    None of this is surprising, and it's an important story. But this thread is already overrun by "Hussein Obama" dipshits. There's no fucking point.

    Makes me wonder if a vehicle called the Camel would sell well in the ME. We Americans like naming cars after horses. It could work.

    This doesn't surprise me cause most of their weaponry they stole/picked up when the Iraqi army was over-ran or dropped their shit and ran isn't it?

    Warfare is big business.

    To fight a war you need an opponent that can fight back (at least a little) and to do that,the opponent needs weapons.

    Watch The Night Manager on Amazon, it's basically that simple.

    That, but other factors too. The ME has been flooded with arms for a very long time, from lots of sources. Add ISIS going door to door confiscating weapons, and tribal conflicts where armed groups found that it was in their best interest to cooperate with them...but this is always how it works in war zones.

    the Saudis? on the battlefield sure in terms of material cost but the beating up is mostly on the Yemeni civilian side who are starving and dying of basic disease outbreaks.

    Reminds me of that scene in Iron Man one where Tony get's obliterated by his own Jericho missile.

    There's a reason companies like Daniel Defense, Spikes, and I think BCM only work with the higher tier military groups rather than pursuing big blanket contracts.
